Leap of Kindness Day 2020Navarre Chamber
What will you do with an extra day?
The Navarre Chamber's first #LeapOfKindnessDay, will take place, on Saturday, February 29, 2020.
Leap of Kindness Day happens every 4 years and was originally started in 2016 by the Saratoga County Chamber. The idea is to get as many people in our community as possible to use the extra day we all get in a Leap Year to do something kind for someone else. Beyond Saratoga County, there were more than 50 chambers in 30 states who joined the Leap of Kindness Day celebration. They had thousands of people take part in the celebration of kindness. Some cooked breakfast or delivered lunch for first responders. Others delivered flowers or socks to residents in local retirement homes. Local employers collected clothes, food and money for a wide range of local charities. Others acted individually sending a thank you card to someone who meant a lot to them.
And now as we inch closer to Leap of Kindness Day 2020, the Navarre Chamber's goal is to see that even more individuals and employers come together to do something kind for someone else using the extra day they will get on February 29, 2020.
What will you do with an extra day in 2020?
On Saturday, February 29, 2020, the Navarre Chamber wants to invite you to use your extra day during Leap Year to do something kind for someone else. EVERYONE is invited to participate. Below are a wide range of ideas and suggestions to help you get started.
The Navarre Chamber is often the facilitator of events, celebrations and movements that bring together leaders of our community from the private, nonprofit and public sectors.
That's really what Leap of Kindness is all about. Inspiring and facilitating everyone in our community to do something kind for someone else. Using the extra day we all get on February 29th during a Leap Year to help and thank others.
